Today I found myself trying on some of my winter clothes from last season. During Winter 14/15, I was a size 20 in bottoms.

So today, I decided to write a post for any ladies who are tired of forcing the “jean dance” and have to size up beyond the typically offerings of 12-22/24 at most plus size stores.
